    Oakland police credit Raiders QB Derek Carr for helping find missing child

    Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has 247,000 Twitter followers and, given his popularity in the Bay Area, it's assumed a significant portion stems from this region.

    Carr put that megaphone to good use.

    Oakland Police sent out an Amber Alert on Saturday hoping to find a young boy gone missing, and Carr retweeted that call for public assistance.

    The boy was quickly found after a citizen replied on Twitter and provided information that led to the rescue.

    That led an Oakland police officer to credit Carr for helping find the boy.

    Carr responded to the news on social media, happy police were able to find a missing child.
